USD Theatre presents Tony Award-winning Doubt A Parable
The plot of "Doubt: A Parable" is ripped from the headlines dealing with the Catholic Church and sexual misconduct charges, but its themes run much deeper and its scope much wider. Written by Academy Award-winner John Patrick Shanley, "Doubt: A Parable" features a cast of Avalon Kann of McGregor, Iowa, who plays the probing Sister Aloysius, principal of a small Catholic grade school in the Bronx. It is her suspicion of Father Flynn, played by Adam Hansen of Wakefield, Neb., that drives the action of the play and turns the world upside down for Sister James, a young and inexperienced Nun, and Mrs. Muller, the mother of the boy linked to Father Flynn’s suspected misconduct. Sister James is played by Nichole Jorgensen of Tea, S.D., while Ebony Shanklin of Sioux Falls, S.D., assumes the role of Mrs. Muller.
"Doubt: A Parable" is directed by MFA graduate directing candidate David G. Mancini of Los Angeles, Calif. The scenic design is by Professor Tim Case while Katie Olwell, Laura Radel and Jay Seevers are designers of costumes, lights and sound, respectively.
Tickets to "Doubt: A Parable" are $8 for adults, $6 for youth (K-12) and non-USD students, and $4 for USD students with current ID. Box office hours are noon to 5 p.m. weekdays and noon to curtain on days of performance. Tickets for “Doubt: A Parable” go on sale Monday, March 23 and can be reserved by calling (605) 677-5400 or by going online at www.usd.edu/cfa/Theatre. Seating is limited.
